About the City of Ankara
Ankara is the capital city of Turkey and the second largest city in the country after Istanbul. It is located at the heart of both Turkey and Central Anatolia. Ankara is the administrative centre and a university town such that most of its inhabitants consist of civil servants, students and academicians. The population is around 4.5 million. Ankara being safer, less crowded and calmer than Istanbul, but also equally modern and historic, it has become more preferable for patients from European countries interested in hair restoration and aesthetic surgery in recent years. Furthermore, the city is a health base point of Middle East where leading university hospitals (Hacettepe University, Gazi University, GATA, Ankara University, Ufuk University, Baskent University, TOBB ETU University Hospital e.t.c.) are located in. The locals are generally friendly to foreigners, and many young people can communicate in English. For a better experience however, it’s a good idea to bring a Turkish phrasebook or dictionary.
The climate of Ankara is relatively mild and continental, with the annual seasons remaining quite distinct. Winter is quite short (December to February), although often quite cold, frosty and at times, a little on the snowy side. You must have a heavy jacket during this season – the weather can be chilly! Summer climate experienced within Ankara is much more appealing and the days are often long, sunny, dry, and pleasantly hot. July and August tend to see the best weather and the highest temperatures, with highs exceeding 30°C / 86°F not being unusual at all.

Cappadocia lies in eastern Anatolia, in the centre of the country. The relief consists of a high plateau over 1000m in altitude that is pierced by volcanic peaks, with Mount Erciyes (ancient Argaeus) near Kayseri (ancient Caesarea) being the tallest at 3916 m. The boundaries of historical Cappadocia are vague, particularly towards the west. To the south, the Taurus Mountains form the boundary with Cilicia and separate Cappadocia from the Mediterranean Sea. The west of Cappadocia is bounded by the historical regions of Lycaonia to the southwest and Galatia to the northwest.
The Black Sea coastal ranges separate Cappadocia from Pontus and the Black Sea, while the east Cappadocia is bounded by the upper Euphrates, before that river bends to the southeast to flow into Mesopotamia, and the Armenian Highland. This results in an area approximately 400 km (250 mi) east–west and 250 km (160 mi) north–south. Due to its inland location and high altitude, Cappadocia has a markedly continental climate, with hot dry summers and cold snowy winters. Rainfall is sparse and the region is largely semi-arid to arid.
